Terence Fisher's 'Island of Terror' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Feb 21, 2017 at 06:00 AM PST by

The 1966 horror film starring the legendary Peter Cushing is headed for high-definition this summer.

In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory says 'Island of Terror' will hit Blu-ray later this year.

When the inhabitants of Petrie's island succumb to a mysterious disease, doctors Brian Stanley (Peter Cushing) and David West (Edward Judd) are asked to investigate. Puncture marks on the corpses reveal the horrifying truth: the islanders and their animals are being killed not by a disease, but by a strange type of silicate organism that sucks the bone from their bodies. As the death toll rises the seemingly indestructible creatures multiply at an alarming rate. Stanley and west lead the desperate islanders in a fight for survival as the unstoppable silicates threaten to engulf the island, and then the world.

No other details have been revealed at this time.
